IMMIGRANTS FOR THE SOUTH.
Ths Right of the South to Insist Upon Hit
lag None Saie the Best. ; -
Robert De CWard In the
rradesmaa ,' July
;0.i the one hand, congested
slam districts iu all the large
northern cities, with a population
largely-of toreign birtti or paren
tkge- and a growing conviction of
the impossibility - even wjth un
limited resources of men or
money-j of permanently raising
the standards of living of this
slum population as long a it is
crowded together, and as long, at
the stream of newer immigrants
pourB in, On the other hand,
vast areas in our western and
southern states where the farmers,
the cotton growers and the mine
owners are asking for labor.
Is it any wonder that the weary
charity workers of these northern
cities are saying that if that their
foreign born slum population
could be distributed over,! the
southern and the western states,
many of the difficulties which are
now met with in educating and
assimilating these aliens could be
disposed of? Is it surprising that
the farmers and cotton growers
and mine owners should on the
twhole look forward to this new
movement of population into
their own districts as likely to
solve for them the great problem
of lack of labor? And does it
strike any one as strange that our
railroads and the foreign steam
ship companies should favor such
a scheme of distribution, which
clearly means more business for
The people of the south at pres
ent hold the key to Jhe Jmmigrar
tion problem. If they say : " We
want anybody we canget to work
for us; if we cannot have an
honest, strong, intelligent, skilled
laborer we will take of low
vitality, poor physique, mentally
deficient, unused to out-door
work j dishonest," then the char
ity workers of our northern cities,
and our jrailroad companies, will
send all sorts of aliens who are
generally regarded as "undesira
ble" into the southern states.
If, on the other hand, the peo
ple of the south clearly recognize
the fact that our present immigra
tion laws make it possible for
thousands of aliens to land here
"every year who are not likely to
benafit but an injury; who are
weak and sickly ; who have come
because they were inveigled into
buying a passage ticket by a steam
ship agent, or were given the
ticket by a charitable society, in
order that they might become a
charge .upon the United States
rather than the home country; if
the poople of the south regard the
welfare of their own country in
stead of considering only their
own financial gain, then they will
insist on having none but honest,
industrious, . healthy and fit im
migrants, ' bucn aliens there are
in abundance in the large cities,
who would be far better off in the
country. rnese are tne ones
' W V -
whom the ; south wants, Dis
honest, shiftless, sickly and unfit
immigrants there are also in
abundance in our large northern
cities. These the south does not
want. Neither do the northern
cities want them. Yet they con
tinue to pour in on us because
congress has not properly dammed
the flood. To send out from Jihe
large cities of the" country dis
tricts,. simply because charitable
agencies think they can thus re
hove themselves of an unpleasant
burden , is much like throwing
one's weeds over one's neighbor's
fence into his garden. . -

Senator Overman's Bill With Referance to
the Cotton Trade in the Orient.
Senator Overman held a confer-
ence ith th SecrGfcarv of the De
partmenfc of Commerce and Labor
today, the result of which is of im-
tance tQ thQ Soutneru States
generally. A final agreement was
reached respecting Senator Over
man's bill designed to extend the
cotton trade in the Orient. Under
the revised bill it is proposed to
appoint a commission of five ex
ports, whose labors to extend the
cotton trade will be under the di
rect supervision of the depart
ment. Some of these commission
ers or agents will make trips abroad
and a display of cotton goods, de
signed for export, will be made in
all cotton manufacturing centers
in Southern and New England
States, while agencies are to be
established where information will
be given as to trade conditions
and tne kind of goods being pur
chased in the various markets of
the world. It is thought the sub
committee to which this was re-
feired will agree to this substitute
and that it will be reported favor
ably at an early date. The con
sular agents will also be directed
to work in harmony with those
who are to be assigned to this
work. Washington Dispatch, 23.

A. D. Kinney, a Confederate
soldier and a well known farmer,
nad quite a dangerous experience
recently and luckily escaped with
his life. He was crossing Flat
Swamp creek bridge when some
timbers gave way and precipated
horses, wagon and driver into the
creek 15 feet below, where the
water is about four feet deep. Mr.
Kinney was thrown clear of the
wagon and timbers and so escaped
unhurt, although completely sub
merged. Some people went
quickly to Mr. Kinney's assistance
and the team was gotten out
without much damage. It seems
nothiug short of a miracle that
the driver and horses were not

Restitution and Vindication.
What a sigh of relief went up
from many gratifying patriots
when "Judge" Hamilton publicly
told the New York legislature
that he would .not tell where
some' of that $1,354,000 life insur
ance yellow dog fund instrusted
to him for "law and legislative
expenses" went to. A similar
sigh would relieve the hardened
heart of Babcock. chairman of the
nnWwi ' rw.
I r w 0
mittee, and the younger and less
hardened heart of Cortelyouhe
chairman of the republican nation
al committee, if he could be sure
that no invesigating committee
would want to know, "where did it
come from': and what "did you do
with it?" Even the strenuous oc
cupant of the White House, whose
campaign was financed with these
tainted contributions, would rest
easier if he could see his way to
wash his hands of the whole
wretched business. .The President
owes it to his good name to order
restitution to be made to the
fund sacred to widows and
orphans, and he certainly owes an
apology to 'Judge -Parker for : vir
tually telling him, he-wagweir:
exaggerating when he charged the"
now admitted 'fact, of these taint
ed contributions. ;
